I don`t really care if most folks are con-`80s/`90s GD music.It`s the reasons in which they use as an excuse to not appreciate it,that gets me...eg.Jerry`s voice was shot.or MIDI-tech lessened the guitar`s overall sound or that drugs made Jer unable to perform the magic we came to hear.All those excuses are simply that,an Excuse!...Jerry`s voice had the soul and heart,in which w/o,certain tunes wouldn`t have touched our senses like they did.MIDI gave the music a feeling of flight,as if it soared off His strings and the drugs....are just drugs.Any heroin addict knows that after the initial"fun"from doing it is over,you don`t feel good from doing it,no"high"...you just feel normal.I`m sure Jerry felt normal,not saying that it isn`t bad for you,and more than likely took him from us...It`s not a reason to bannish the years in which He used,for there are many more then the`90s in that case.....my freak flag is officially flying...I like all years of GD music,the same.To have favorites would be selfish.
